Same here. It was really bad when I first got it a couple of weeks ago, maybe busy downloading schedules or formatting the disk and whatnot. It still happens from time to time, whether using component or HDMI.
I've also had a couple other problems with the unit:
1) It got stuck once so that whenever I turned it on, the tuner display would be black for all channels (but not the guide) until I watched anything prerecorded for a second. Then I could go back to live TV. On/off didn't fix this, but after a few days I unplugged the power and that worked. (Component connection at the time.)
2) When I pause a TV show and swap to the other tuner, the FIRST time I swap back, it forgets where I was paused and starts from the beginning. Subsequent swaps to the same buffer are fine. But this is VERY annoying, esp. if the buffer is deep that first time. I really hope they fix this one.
3) Having to google in order to program a 30-second skip button is a shame. Skip is a huge win. If they ever disable the feature, I'll return the unit. Seriously.
Other than that, I'm thrilled with it. It's my first DVR thingy, and I just never knew what I was missing until now. Also, this forum is awesome. :)
